System Password to enter BIOS

2021-10-13, 19:16 PM

My machine is Ideapad 720s and I want to enable virtualization and I know it can be done by going into the BIOS. But when I try to enter BIOS, it asks for a system password that I don't know because I did not set it. 

 

How can I reset the password or make the BIOS password free.

The only way to remove/reset a BIOS supervisor password is to know it, and use it in the appropriate fields. There are no workarounds/backdoors/master passwords. If you do not know the password, or cannot get it, then you will need to contact Support to discuss a system board replacement.

 

If this thread strays into the discussion of circumvention of security features, it will be locked or removed without prior notice/warning.

 

Regards.
